New research building reflects the progression of space optimization at Nationwide Children’s Hospital

The latest facility to expand Nationwide Children’s Hospital research capabilities represents the evolution of the research workplace with a synergistic neighborhood layout, individual and shared resources, and a highly productive space utilization and assignment model. Lena Lynch and Kevin Noble examine lab/office/shared-space metrics for the 290,000-SF Research Building 4, and key decisions made to support hybrid work, attract and retain talent, ensure future research program flexibility through modularity and furniture, and answer increasing demand for dry lab space. They identify lessons learned and next steps, including best-value renovation and reorganization strategies for older labs and core facilities.
